There's a circular from the Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA) going around regarding confirmed reservations in quarantine hotels for the passengers travelling out of Doha with a return booking. We reached out to QCAA and they confirmed that this circular is legit.
According to the official circular number 12 of 2020, all passengers travelling out of Doha with a return booking must have a confirmed reservation in one of the designated quarantine hotels in Qatar on their return. Therefore, no passengers irrespective of nationality can depart from Doha without holding a confirmed hotel booking for their return for a period of fourteen (14) days which will be prepaid against a nonrefundable voucher obtained from the hotel through “Discover Qatar" website.
In case travel dates into Doha are amended, hotel reservations can be changed subject to availability.
Passengers who are currently out of the State of Qatar, and upon their return, must also hold a confirmed hotel booking in one of the quarantine hotels at the time of checking into their flights to Doha.
QCAA has instructed the airlines and travel agents managers to adhere to the above-mentioned instructions until further notification.

As Qatar plans to ease COVID-19 restrictions in four phases, the third phase (August) will allow low-risk inbound flights for priority passengers like returning residents. However, the list of low-risk countries has not been announced yet. QID holders will not be able to board a flight to Qatar without first receiving authorization to travel to Qatar, and then by also providing confirmation of a 14 day government-approved welcome home package reservation.
QID holders are advised not to book a quarantine package until approval to return to Qatar has been confirmed. Details of the approval process will be published when the eligibility and guidelines are confirmed by the relevant authorities. Please check back regularly to this page for updates.
